Pro-Terror Group’s Toolkit Reveals Effort to Coordinate Anti-Israel Protests
The rise of coordinated anti-Israel protests in the United States has left many questioning the forces behind these seemingly organized efforts. One organization at the center of this wave is “Within Our Lifetime” (WOL), a group with a troubling pro-terror agenda dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Their recent publication of a tool kit provides a revealing glimpse into their tactics and goals.
The tool kit unveiled by WOL lays bare their intentions. It states that the Palestinian people have launched an operation called “Al-Aqsa Flood,” aiming to inspire the world that liberation is within reach. WOL emphasizes the importance of preparedness for “Palestinian formations and our allies in the United States and elsewhere.” They stress that this toolkit, born from a decade of organizing in New York City, is a roadmap for organizations to host successful rallies and build the movement for Palestine.
The toolkit includes flyer templates showcasing Hamas militants celebrating on an Israeli tank during the recent massacre that claimed the lives of over 1,400 Israelis. WOL recommends adding relevant event information and sponsoring organizations to these flyers.
Even more concerning is the list of chants provided in the toolkit, some of which call for the genocide of Jews. Chants like “From New York to Gaza Globalize the Intifada!” and “Intifada revolution!” are featured, promoting violence and unrest. “Intifada” translates from Arabic as “uprising” or “insurrection,” making it clear that these rallies aim to incite violence and rebellion.
WOL launched “Globalize the Intifada” in 2021, adopting the Palestinian uprising “Intifada” against Israeli occupation as a model of resistance for oppressed people worldwide. It is important to remember that during the second Intifada, over 120 suicide bombings targeted civilians.
According to Canary Mission, an organization dedicated to exposing hatred and anti-Semitism, WOL promotes Palestinian resistance “by any means necessary.” They actively support terrorists, advocate for the “Globalize the Intifada” movement, and spread incitement. Violence and physical confrontations often accompany WOL rallies, particularly in New York City, where the group is based.
Adding to the concerns, WOL aligns itself with the anti-police, Black Lives Matter (BLM), and Antifa movements in various areas. Their “Security Recommendations” section pushes an anti-law enforcement narrative, urging activists not to cooperate with the police and to avoid recording or sharing potentially incriminating information.
The toolkit recommends that activists should “cover their face if they do not want to be identified,” highlighting a concerning lack of transparency. It also suggests having a police negotiator designated as the sole person talking to law enforcement, promoting an adversarial approach to law enforcement.
What’s particularly alarming is WOL’s idolization of convicted terrorists, such as Leila Khaled, who was involved in the hijacking of TWA Flight 840 in 1969 and El Al Flight 219 in 1970. Additionally, they venerate Rasmea Odeh, who organized a supermarket bombing that resulted in the deaths of two college students and attempted to bomb the British consulate in Jerusalem.
WOL boldly proclaims that they defend the right of Palestinians to resist the Zionist occupation “by any means necessary,” a statement that raises serious concerns about their intentions and tactics.
Moreover, despite claiming to be “entirely funded by grassroots donations,” WOL is not registered as a nonprofit organization in any US state, and there is no listing for WOL under its name on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website for tax-exempt organizations.
In conclusion, the coordinated anti-Israel protests in the US are not spontaneous grassroots movements but rather orchestrated efforts driven by organizations like WOL, with a troubling pro-terror agenda and a disturbing history of promoting violence and hatred. It’s essential to recognize the true nature of these movements and remain vigilant against the spread of extremism and violence.
